COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Glorious ruby amber brown clear with medium size very pale beige orange head. Aroma is caramel honeycomb malt when cool and even more honeycomb when warmed. Medium woody cask bitter, grain and lighter metallic sweet malt start. Chewy medium strength roasted bitter finish and aftertaste. Didn't get much coffee. Very pleasant drinking

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
This beer looked good but, had no taste. I don't have anything more to say but, you have to have 75 characters so you just looked at this for nothing.

Drinkingdan (375) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Nice deep dark red color. Deffinitly malty caramel taste. The coffee notes were very nice too.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Nice deep ruby color with this. The taste had this weird smokey flavor to it. the palate was kinda sorta watery.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2003
The color is dark brownish with a nice white head. The taste is roasted malts and an almost smoked or coffee-like finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2003
Really boring. Watery mouhtfeel, some nuttyness, peat, caramel. Really dry, which is a bit of a bonus, thats the only thing i liked about it.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2003
Are people rating the same beer. Mine looks like the picture - almost black!?! Large, long lasting head that leaves a nice lace. Aroma; malty, roasted, toffee. Taste; inoffensive, sweet, roasted-bitter, dry. Has a lot to offer considering "low" ABV.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Clear brown color with a fluffy dark cream colored head. Nutty/earthy/malty aroma with some sourdough undertones. Dry caramel with a murmur of acidic earthy malt. Dry dark malt finish. Nothing I can get thrilled about.

Nuffield (3761) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Deep dark brown-amber, creamy smooth head. Smooth palate, though not as creamy as expected from the appearance. A mediocre flavor, suggesting tea and dishwater. Mild aroma with only a hint of grape or other fruitiness (cherry?). Really very mediocre. (on tap, Hobgoblin, Oxford)

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Faint aroma, some caramel sweetness and toasty malt. Medium red-amber color, persistent white head and lace. Malty, fruity, faintly bittersweet flavor profile, some touches of floral hop bitterness towards the finish. Light bodied, effervescent palate. Quenching.
